I only knew Dave professionally through epromos. He had a great personality and was very professional and I enjoyed dealing with him. My sympathy to all his family and loved ones. He will be missed.

I didn’t know Dave other than in a professional capacity as a customer of his at ePromos. But he was always so courteous, friendly, and went out of his way to provide some of the best customer service I’ve ever experienced. It was not uncommon for him to email me at 11:00 p.m., trying to meet our deadlines. I can only imagine how immense your feelings of loss are over the death of someone so special. Deepest sympathies from me and my colleagues at Seasons Hospice in Rochester, Minnesota.

We were the best of friends for over 40 years. No one could have a better friend than Zeb. I miss him so much already. The world lost a great guy. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Aunt Toots, Cousins Theresa and Patrick and families our sincere sympathy on David’s passing. That SMILE he always had when we would see him along with a big hug. ❤
Forever in our hearts.
Sue and Mike Koshiol

Hearts are broken and sad. May you feel healing from the prayers being offered for all the family. Blessings.

Embrace your grief, Jesus wept when Lazarus died and knows your pain, go to him in prayer. I pray boldly for you that in God’s time and with his hand your hearts will be healed.

Dear David,
As a childhood friend of our children we remember fondly your comings and goings in and out of our house eating our peanut butter sandwiches and sometimes burnt cookies.
You always had a sly smile on your face and we always wondered what you and our children were up to.🤔
In those busy years we don’t remember saying we love you but we are saying it now.
We love you David.
May you rest in peace and your dear Mom Evelyn and your family be comforted.

I’m saddened by the loss of David. He was one of my very best childhood friends. We’d spend long summers playing in the neighborhood. We’d get fishing nets and go “squirrel hunting”, put on parades, sell magazines, put gifts in each other’s mailboxes, go trick-or-treating, swim in each other’s pools and sneak into neighbor’s gardens to get a snack 🥕 when we got hungry while playing. So many fond memories…
Rest in peace, my dear friend. 💕

My sincere condolences to the family.

RIP Dave 🙏

Deepest Sympathies and Condolences.
